Appliances are downplayed in this award-winning white minimalist kitchen.
Designer Elaine Cecconi’s “white wrapper” is a purely minimalist kitchen and classically neutral. Defined by white horizontal and vertical surfaces that wrap both island and perimeter base cabinets it is a prize-winning galley kitchen in the annual contest sponsored by Wolf/SubZero appliances. The lone touch of color is the red knobs on the Wolf gas range.
Like many minimalist kitchens, white counters waterfall over the sides to create a cleanly finished look. Dark, wood-tone base cabinets are sequestered to keep the kitchen looking grounded. Above them, subtle beige glass wall creates the backdrop for a range with a hood pared down to a vertical shaft. A narrow steel shelf — aligned with the bottom of the vent hood — creates another long horizontal line. But the kitchen has no upper cabinets which leaves the work spaces open and uncluttered on each side of the range. As with many galley kitchens, the sink is placed in the island — creating a handy turn around cooking relationship to the range. With the refrigeration neatly built into white panels and no upper cabinets to draw attention, the zero-radius (no curve) contemporary aesthetic rules.
